Corporate and commercial law

Legal systems across South-east Asia are undergoing rapid changes and modernisation given the enormous economic growth in the region. Keeping abreast of developments and having access to the most attuned advice is imperative in ensuring that agreements and structures, especially those intended to apply across areas of business in ASEAN, are thoroughly considered, commercially sound and legally enforceable.
